This episode is part of a series of conversations with colleagues from around the state on the book So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. We'll be bringing you the conversations mostly in their entirety - editing only for flow.

I want to thank everyone who participated in these conversations. These conversations are hard, but we must have them if we're going to dismantle systemic racism in our country and in our college.

Thanks again to every member of our conversation. It takes a great deal of courage to have these conversations.

On this episode, we mentioned the following resources:

  • The Coddling of the American Mind
  • Jane Elliott video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebPoSMULI5U (Note - this is one of many videos about Jane Elliott. A google search for Jane Elliott video will bring up many more)
  • The Coffee Break [Language] Podcasts - https://radiolingua.com/category/podcast/
    • You can also subscribe to Coffee Break in your favorite podcast player.
  • As the Call to Action, I remind you that if something made you feel uncomfortable or even angry, please sit with that for a little while. Ask yourself why. Have a conversation with a colleague you trust to talk with you honestly about the issues of race and racism.
  • If you’d like to listen to the book So You Want to Talk About Race and you are a member of the Ivy Tech community, you can download the book from our Ivy Tech library to listen to. Please talk with your local librarian about how to do so.
